    Thank you

    Hello,


    If you want to forward mail to your users and not retain a copy of it you'd need to create a forwarder without the email account existing on the server, if the email account exists on the server a copy of the forwarded mail will remain in the account. You can set this up at cPanel>>Email>>Forwarders

    Further information on Email forwarders can be found in our Forwarders Documentation as well

    Hi Lauren, thank you!!!

    If I understand you correctly I can forward an email like xyz@domain.com to xyy@maindomain.com by just creating a forwarder on cPanel, I do not need to create the email account xyz@domain.com to make this work?

    cool, I thought I need an email account first to be able to do anything with it!!

    THx

    Hi Dan, you're very welcome, I'm happy I could help! Yes, that's correct as long as the forwarder exists the email account does not need to.

    Thank you!
